Epcot - The Magic of Possibility

Epcot is a celebration of the world around us, combining high tech fun with the magic of Disney to create immersive experiences that excite the senses.

From under the sea to beyond the stars, the diverse cultures around the world or the future of the planet’s fragile ecosystems, Epcot manages to live up to its reputation as a permanent ‘World’s Fair’, with a hefty sprinkling of that Disney magic too.

It’s full of rides, attractions and festivals that inspire you to discover the power of human imagination. Even the most curious minds will be entertained from first thing in the morning, to last thing at night.

Epcot rides and attractions

Epcot rides cover the whole range of experiences, and for all ages, too. From tots to teens, there’s plenty to see and do. There are also plenty of attractions, events, and festivals aimed at adult visitors too, such as the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which runs from mid to late Autumn. Here’s a quick rundown of just a few Epcot attractions:

Epcot restaurants - an international culinary experience

Epcot Restaurants - Noodles

Epcot restaurants capture the spirit of the Park, giving you the chance to eat and drink your way around the world. Food is delicious, portions are huge, and there’s everything from family favourites like burgers, salads and ice cream, to more exotic food.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival usually runs around Autumn time. It includes culinary demonstrations, master mixology classes, and tips on the best wines to pair with almost any dish you can mention.

During the rest of the year you’ll find everything from fine Scandinavian cuisines in the Norway Pavilion, to gorgeously sweet and spicy Moroccan food at the Tangierine Café. You’ll also find plenty of grab-and-go food on offer.
